One Layer Cards: Clean and Simple Cardmaking Class Day 2

When I woke up to day 2 of the card making class, I was pretty excited. One layer cards!!!!! They had some fabulous examples and a video to boot! Super fun…………. I used all Hero Arts stamps today! I kept the layout pretty similar to the designs showcased.

Now you can see here on this last card I forgot to use my little embossing tool (highly recommend, it works people) to keep the stray powder away! Won’t forget next time. But this card is still stunning in person with the shine and 3 different shades of distress inks!  Bring on day 3!!! I am entering both cards in the Simon Says NEW Challenge and the YCU Clean and Simple Challenge!
